How and What to Pack in your Waxed Canvas Dopp Kit

Ready to embark on your next adventure? Whether you rock a rugged look or prefer something more polished, grooming is vital. Do you have your routine for staying on point? Awesome. But what happens when you hit the road? How do you take your grooming game with you? Here are some tips on which men's grooming essentials you need to pack in your waxed canvas dopp kit and the best way to pack them.


Dental Care: Pack travel-sized versions of your favourite toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, and mouthwash 

Deodorant: Choose a travel-sized stick or roll-on deodorant that's easy to stash in your carry-on or a dopp kit.

Hair Care: Keep your hair looking its best with travel-sized bottles of shampoo and conditioner. Consider switching to a shampoo bar to streamline packing and breeze through airport security.

Shaving: Pack a razor and shaving soap or cream for a clean and smooth shave on the road. Choose a compact razor that's easy to pack and won't take up too much space in your luggage.

Hair Styling: Whether you prefer a sleek look or a tousled style, a comb and styling balm are must-have items for grooming on the go.

Beard Maintenance: Pack travel-sized bottles of beard oil to nourish and hydrate your beard and a beard brush or comb to keep it neat.

To start, prioritize solid items over liquids. Opt for solid alternatives like soap bars or shave bars to avoid airline liquid restrictions. This will also help you avoid potential spills in your carry-on.

However, if you need to bring liquids, taking precautions to prevent leaks is essential. Nobody wants a messy situation, especially when travelling by air. A leak can ruin your clothes and other belongings in your bag, not to mention waste your grooming products.

Here are two simple methods to ensure your grooming essentials stay securely sealed for your travels:

Zip-Top Bags: Place your liquids in small zip-top bags, such as snack-size bags. These are perfect for containment; if you're flying, the containers will fit snugly inside these bags anyway.

Plastic Wrap Method: Unscrew the lid of your liquid container. Place plastic wrap over the opening and screw the lid back into place. This creates an effective seal to prevent leaks. Keep in mind that it might be challenging to replicate this method for your return trip unless you manage to save and reuse the plastic wrap.

Before you embark on your journey, take a moment to implement these preventative measures - it's a small investment of time that can save you from a major hassle later on.


Opt for a high-quality toiletry bag or a dopp kit. We love our waxed canvas Finch Dopp kit or Olive Voyager pouch for storing your travel grooming essentials. Both are roomy, water-resistant and durable.  

With these men's travel essentials and careful planning, you can maintain your grooming routine and feel your best wherever your travels take you.


Now that you know how and what to pack in your waxed canvas dopp kit, treat yourself to one - or gift one to a gentleman who embodies adventurous exploration and enduring elegance.

Bon voyage and happy grooming!
